I just finished reading the entire collection of one of my favorite comic strips of all time: Calvin and Hobbes. Compiled into three books (each of which is HUGE) is the entire works of Calvin and Hobbes created by Bill Watterson. I have read a couple of the smaller books before, but had never really read everything that I had been published in this collection. Luckily, I found a library that sent over the entire collection to my local library so that I could read these books and I was no disappointed. The creativity that this comic strip includes is truly genius, and the artwork is pretty incredible. I feel that kids Calvin's age truly are becoming quite that smart and he was definitely ahead of his time, but nonetheless, I smiled throughout the entire time I read these books. My ratings:
1. The Complete Calvin and Hobbes: Book 1 by Bill Watterson
2. The Complete Calvin and Hobbes: Book 2 by Bill Watterson
3. The Complete Calvin and Hobbes: Book 3 by Bill Watterson = A+!
If you have never had the opportunity to read the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip, I guarantee that you will not be disappointed if you take the time to check it out.
